“Complexities, Appeals, and Paradoxes of Language” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 3:12pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 31, 2018

Those scholars committed to an inter-disciplinary perspective on human experiences confront centuries-old divisions between and among the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities, competing investigative methods, descriptive foci, and explanatory emphases. Bolstered by specialization, administrative demarcations, professionalization, and expertise, the discontinuities generate trajectories of intellectual enrichment and progress.  On the other hand, have scholars within these intellectual spheres, disciplines, and area studies become passing ships in the night?  What would constitute evidence of this condition, if this is, indeed, the case? Have scholars not been displaced from public discourse and social media?

Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Conference: Washington, D.C., March 21-24, 2019

Riffing off Du Bois ("Criteria of Negro Art"), Wright ("Blueprint for Negro Writing"), Lorde ("Poetry is not a Luxury"), Baraka ("Black Art"), and many others, this panel seeks to situate, examine, interrogate, and align black writers in American literature and culture. Our objective is to define the many ways black/African American/Negro/Slave writers have characterized or fictionalized what it “means” to be a writer of color.

As Toni Morrison has written, a “black author…is at some level always conscious of representing one’s own race to, or in spite of, a race of reader that understands itself to be ‘universal’ or race free.”

Bearing Witness: Reading James Baldwin in the 21st Century

(A Critical Anthology)

“Perhaps I did not succumb to ideology . . . because I have never seen myself as a spokesman. I am a witness. In the church in which I was raised you were supposed to bear witness to the truth. Now, later on, you wonder what in the world the truth is, but you do know what a lie is.”—James Baldwin, Interview by Julius Lester
